Srinagar: The Indian Air Force has successfully shot down a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet that ventured into Indian airspace, reports say. Also, there is credible evidence that the pilot parachuted from the jet.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani media have begun to spread false news claiming that Pakistan have shot down an Indian jet.
Surprisingly, the picture of the downed Indian fighter plane, which was being shown in Pak media, turned out to be the picture of an Indian aircraft that crashed in Odisha in 2015 during a training exercise.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has stopped air transport completely, even shutting down Islamabad Airport, fearing a strong retaliation from India. India has put Jammu and Kashmir on high alert.
